It’s another gorgeous Trezzi Farm wedding today! But this one is a little different from the norm. Ryan and Jessica went for a totally modern theme, which perfectly contrasts the rustic vibe of Green Bluff. The two called in the Lauren and Beth from Design by Occasion to help coordinate the the details of their wedding. Everything from the chevron pattern, the color palette, centerpieces and the stationery works together to complement the theme.
Not only is this wedding big on inspiration, there are also some amazing photographs by Madeline James Photography. And be sure to check out Jessica’s awesome wedding advice below!
Advice from Jessica about planning a wedding…
Our wedding day passed in a blur, and if we were to do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing! One key vendor we hired was our wedding coordinator, and we will forever recommend hiring one to anyone getting married. Hiring a planner, even for day-of-services, allowed us to have memories of our friends and family instead of whether the sound system was working (it wasn’t) or whether our car service was on time (they were). On YOUR wedding day, focus on the important things, not the those pesky details which can derail you.
That being said, consider doing a few DIY projects. It may be more work, and the cost may not be cheaper, but those projects take on greater meaning after the fact. Now we look back on our photos and say, “my amazing and loving mom made my wedding veil” or “my talented and generous uncle blessed us with those beautiful flowers.” How lucky can two people be to look back and see the physical manifestations of love, given out of generosity by friends and family.
Lastly, hire yourself a great photographer that exemplifies your preferred aesthetic and spend as much as your budget will allow. When it’s all said and done, memories fade and details will be forgotten, but each time you look at your photos, the happiness and joy of that day will be brought into crisp focus–it’s worth it.
